    Isn't it great? I have installed 26 apps since my last re-install and it still runs as fast as ever. I have a grand total of around 50. Enjoy the rest of your Mac experience ^_^ :D:apple::cool:

    When you run Windows on an Intel iMac with at least 3 gig RAM, using VM Ware, then Windows also rocks. I run both OSes with many programs open in both, including Photoshop, Office, Premiere, Flash, and it all works very well.

    Where its way too hot.
    Totally agree. When I used to purchase a new PC, I would love the fast and responsiveness of the system at the beginning. Then after loading just a few apps, there was the inevitable slowing down and loading of the OP sys. Man was I surprised when I switched over to my iMac and the good ol OS X. I have not noticed hardly any slowing with all the apps and widgets I have thrown at it (except for iphoto loading only about 3sec slower after importing about 17000 photos into it. I can live with that though:) )

    I usually have to reformat my PC once a twice a year for this reason. Just so it wont slow down. I've even started storing every file on second HD so i can just erase and watch it be fast for a week or two. On my powerbook in the almost 3 years i've had it the only time i reinstalled was about a month ago and thats cause it was taking almost a minute to boot up instead of around 30 seconds :D
